Having once lived in the neighbourhood of the original location with frequent visits, sad to see that the franchisor has imposed a rigid disappointing menu product selection. There are currently some 44 locations according to their web site, and since 1988 I have personally visited at least 16 (my work had me covering a wide area). Wimpy's was a reliable... More

Sunday brunch with parents. Menu is huge! Great prices. Super quick service. Strong but delicious coffee, bottomless. Food quality is what you would expect at a diner with reasonable prices and large portions! Close to the 401. Awesome.

Stopped here on the road from Toronto to Kingston, saw it at the last minute and wanted to avoid fast food. Staff was friendly, menu pretty big and the food was tasty. Portions seem a bit on the smaller side which is ok with us but may be off putting to Americans used to the oversized culture. Milkshakes need to... More

We stopped in for lunch. Food was really good. Soup tasted almost as good as homemade. We both had a wrap, mine souvlaki, my wifes was chicken. Both were grilled and delicious. Generous portion.

Found this restaurant. Went in for breakfast. Took eggs, bacon, potatoes. The potatoes I do not like. Tasted boring. They need to either change the kind of potatoes they serve or do something with what they are serving now. Was my first time here since I was going thru town.

This is a typical breakfast spot and usually extremely busy. Food is okay, but pretty greasy. Everything just looks a little worn out. Menus are dirty etc. not quite sure why it's as busy as it is other than there are not a lot of breakfast spots around. Food is edible but ......

Went for lunch and had to listen to the owner yelling into the phone at someone and then listen to him loudly complain to his staff about the whole situation, which lasted almost my entire meal. Food was okay but won't be back. there's lots of places to get lunch when you order bacon, eggs and toast.

I have only been to wimpys for breakfast. A couple of times in the past week with two different groups. The second time ,which was today, our waitress seemed to have other things on her mind. Didn't really seem to want to serve us. Shouldn't have to wave across restaurant to get her attention. Blond a d dark hair. Breakfast... More

For the most part, so long as you can get decent bacon & eggs, a diner is a diner but the staff here make this Wimpy's kinda special. A special shout out to Valerie & Rose, who can make you feel like you're having a conversation with them all the way through your meal, while they are at the same... More
